Planting bulbs in containers in the fall will give you a sunny show for spring.
Remember how tall your bulbs will get. If you have a deep pot, fill some of the space with pinecones or packing peanuts before adding soil. This not only saves on the amount of potting soil you’ll need, but it also significantly reduces the weight of your container. Choosing a fiberglass pot will also make it more lightweight and easier to move around when necessary.
